The good news is, I had a window of opportunity earlier this afternoon where I could talk and laugh without feeling like I was shredding my throat, which was especially good timing as I read for the first time Stephen King's short story "Battleground." Yes, I laughed out loud more than once.
Additional bad news is, Sydney Pollack has died of cancer. Good director, surprisingly good under-the-radar character actor.
Additional good news is, merovingian still writes stuff like this.
And in what I hope is good news, I'm starting to feel tired and ready to sleep. I hope this leads to sleep. Sleep soon...
